The centre flower in each head or cluster usually hermaphrodite, the surrounding flowers usually male. Tepals glabrous outside, villous near the base on the inner surface, about 8-9 mm long. Staminal filaments about 4 mm long, attached to the base of the tepals. Hypogynous glands absent. Ovary sessile, villous, about 2 mm long, ovule one. Style glabrous, about 6 mm long. Stigma terminal, +/- 2-lipped.
